WinMaximumize 1.1
Instantly expand a selected window to fill any available free space

If you've several application windows visible on your PC desktop, then organising them normally requires lots of manual dragging of the various window borders. Which works, but is tedious.

WinMaximumize can help to automate this process, though. Once it's running, simply pressing the hotkey (Ctrl+F1 by default, though this can be changed) will extend the window border in all directions to fill any available space. As long as the program can be resized, anyway (if an application window isn't normally resizeable, WinMaximumize will have no effect).

And so if there's a window above your chosen application, for instance, and to the right, its window borders will instantly extend to meet theirs, without you having to do anything else at all.

This worked just fine for us, but if you don't like the results - or you decide you've just finished with your windows in this arrangement - then another hotkey (Ctrl+Shift+F1 by default) will restore the window to its previous size and position.

One small issue here comes in WinMaximumize's RAM use. It's not too bad (15MB or so on our test PC), but still rather more than we expected considering what the program is doing.

It does provide a quick and easy way to help reorganise your desktop, though, and if you're tired of resizing windows manually then WinMaximumize could save you a lot of time.

Verdict:

A quick and easy way to help rearrange your desktop windows

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
